Phase Technology Launches Velocity Speaker Line

Home Entertainment Speaker Company Debuts at CES its New Full Line of Home Theater Speaker Systems

JACKSONVILLE, FL - January 8, 2004 - Phase Technology introduces its latest line of high -fidelity home entertainment speakers - Velocity. Named for its streamlined shape and mind -bending accurate performance, this entirely new series includes bookshelf, floor -standing and surround speakers as well as powered subwoofers. Velocity is showing at the Consumer Electronics Show 2004 in Las Vegas (January 8 -11). The entire Velocity line will be shown, with a V12 System demonstrated at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall, booth 16033.


"The Velocity line's sleek exterior is matched only by its exceptional performance," said Roberta Lewis, vice president of sales and marketing at Phase Technology. "Velocity sports a clean and contemporary design that will complement any home's interior. Coupled with its highly defined, powerful performance and unbeatable value, Velocity delivers great music and movie excitement that's affordable to all."

Phase Technology's Velocity line features a stunning new visual aesthetic combined with proprietary technologies to produce a matchless package of aural performance. Phase Technology shifts Velocity's performance into high gear with a woofer so innovative, it purrs despite its name. Using Uniframe construction, the one -piece woofer frame is molded as part of the speaker baffle surface. The basket is the top layer of a three -part baffle assembly with a dense, highly damped center section and 3/4" MDF. This makes for an ultra -rigid, non -resonant configuration to deaden vibration and produce exhilarating, clear and clean sound. Phase Technology offers two cabinet finishes with black, paintable metal grilles to match any décor: warm Sun Maple and contemporary Black Rosewood laminate.

At a glance, these new speakers reveal a style that screams speed and power, but taking a look under the hood - or grille - reveals just how Velocity puts the pedal to the metal. The woofers in this series are designed for extra long throw and use Phase Technology's proprietary VDT™ cones. The injection -molded polypropylene cones are layered with Vapor Deposited Titanium for a smooth and extended midrange response, while the long throw design allows the Velocity system to play at live concert levels without compressing or breaking up.

Performing as a system, the speakers stand out as peerless. The difference can be heard immediately through their Absolute Phase™ Crossovers, a processing technology that gives listeners the same soundstage no matter where they are. Even with speakers at different heights and varied listening positions throughout a room, all movie soundtracks or music selections maintain total clarity, imaging accuracy, and even tonal balance.

A 250 -Watt onboard amp powers the matching line of subwoofers, dubbed High Velocity. High Velocity subs feature mica/graphite polypropylene drivers, an extremely rigid material that's lightweight enough to produce quick, extremely highly defined, room -shaking bass. The internal amp's smart circuitry, created expressly for the High Velocity series, digitally adjusts the power to produce always -clean sound at very high levels. Phase Technology offers 8", 10" and 12" High Velocity subwoofers for flexibility in matching any environment's acoustics.

This unwavering attention to quality is carried out with every sub -assembly found in each Velocity speaker. From driver fabrication to integrating proprietary crossover design, each aspect of production must meet a set of quality control criteria before proceeding to the next step. This process ensures years of uncompromising performance with every Phase Technology speaker backed by a 10 -year warranty and every amp covered by a 3 -year warranty.
